How to Boost Database Development Productivity on Linux, Docker, and Kubernetes with Microsoft SQL Server 2017 REGISTER >

"This article will report in detail on how to correctly install and configure the recently released Oracle8i relational database manager. This article will also show why and how I used VMWare to install Oracle."

"The new Oracle8i server is quite revolutionary. It is the first internet-ready RDBMS on the market (the i in Oracle8i stands for Internet). The two main features that make it Internet-ready are the internal Java virtual machine and the internal Web server. These two features open new possibilities in e-commerce and intranet applications. Previously, you had Oracle and a separate Web server. Obviously, there was a big penalty for having the OS switch context many times in order to get data from Oracle and publish it with a Web server. Now, the operating system doesn't have to switch address space when serving html from within Oracle8i, because the Web server is just a thread within the same process."
